Maybe FOSS should stop being like PETA and, instead, tell people why it's *good* to use FOSS. Why Linux is *better* than Windows, GiMP is *better* than Photoshop, OpenOffice is *better* than MS Office. And maybe people will listen. But if you insult their software and tell them to use something else, they won't be very open to the idea.

Too hard, and in some cases impossible. Anyone who has used both 3D Studio Max and Blender will laugh in your face if you try and tell them Blender is an overall better piece of software to use.

If it's a public school, then yes. Parents frequently demonstrate they lack rational judgement. When it involves the future of not just their own child but other children too, irrational choices based on personal preferences and beliefs should not be allowed. If its a private school... well, they make that choice when they enroll their children.

Submission + - Serenity - A new web server for the masses

AnarkiNet writes: "I'm currently developing an open source web server using C#, based on the .NET platform, with plans to get it working on Mono for full compatibility. The project is still in an alpha stage, but is usable for experimental purposes.

I'd really appreciate it if the slashdot community could put its collective technical mind to work and come up with ideas for improvement. Bug reports are also welcome.

The project is hosted at CodePlex and can be found here: http://www.codeplex.com/Serenity"
